This morning's episode offers a reflection upon this scripture:
I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.
I am the gate. (door) Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10:9)
Jim reflects that all transformational beginnings begin with endings. Lent begins as EPiphany ends. Jesus' life as a carpenter ends as he begins his journey as Emmanuel - God with Us (at the Jordan River. Jim includes a couple of life experiences.
He then concludes by suggesting that this Ash Wednesday may be a transformational beginning for those who begin their Lent earnestly in prayer.
Howie writes. "Every Path has a beginning. Sometimes it is apparent, but often it passes unnoticed. To find oneself already on the road, the familiar receding and the next place of rest still over the horizon, is to be in the hands of God, the one who has no beginning or ending." (Sasser, Paths - 2019, p4).
Blessings along The Way, Jim and Howie
